The Retreat

Seashells is one of four light and modern apartments seconds from Gylly beach in Falmouth. Renovated in 2020, this ground floor apartment has beautiful sea views of the ever changing tides and sleeps two comfortably. Falmouth town and its eateries are just a leisurely stroll away, meaning you quite literally have everything you need on your doorstep.

Short breaks are available on selected dates from October – March (2 night minimum). If your desired dates are not bookable online please contact the team here.


Stepping inside Seashells, you’re welcomed into a light and airy open-plan living room, kitchen and diner. With modern interiors and plenty of space to lounge and dine – the apartment has everything you need for a self-catering getaway. The bedroom hosts a double bed and en suite bathroom and has been decorated in calming earthy tones with a Scandinavian touch and makes a peaceful spot to watch the waves roll in of a morning. The en suite has a shower, WC and basin.


Exiting the front door of your apartment and walking straight ahead will take you straight to one of Falmouth’s most popular sandy beaches. The Bay View apartment building itself is beautifully kept and doesn’t look like your typical apartment block. It is small and has a homely feel. It has been used as holiday apartments for a number of years before having extensive renovations.
Not only are you perfectly located for those lovely beach days, but you’re also walking distance to Falmouth’s town centre, where you’ll find an abundance of restaurants, shops, bakeries, bars and pubs.
There’s ample parking but with everything you need less than 10 minutes away, you really can enjoy Cornwall without the car.

Things we love

The apartment is just a stone’s throw from Gylly, a Falmouth beach popular with sea swimmers, evening walkers and sunrise watchers. The beaches of Falmouth are arguably some of the best places to swim all year round, as well as have a go at paddle boarding and kayaking. Just ten minutes away, Falmouth town is an arty, creative hub with a huge choice of things to see and do. It’s worth taking your pick from numerous top fine dining, cafes and takeaways serving some of the best seafood in the county before returning back to your blissful home by the sea.
